"A masterwork of irony that contains both a dark and bitter meaning and
a joyous, extraordinary creativity of imagination. That's why it has lived for so long."
Gulliver's Travels tells of the fantastic voyages of Lemuel Gulliver, an Englishman
and ship's surgeon, who travels to the "several remote nations of the world." In the beginning,
he becomes shipwrecked in the land of Lilliput, where the distressed inhabitants are only six
inches tall. His second voyage takes him to Brobdingnag, where lives a race of giants. At
Glubdubdrib, the Island of Sorcerers, he speaks with great men of the past and learns from
them the lies of history. Further adventures find Gulliver in a land ruled by intelligent horses.
For children, it is an enchanting fantasy; for adults, it is a satirical masterpiece, a parody of
political life in Swift's time, and a scathing send-up of manners and morals in
